Survivor Wagon: 1965 Chevrolet Biscayne

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

Here is an easily recognizable wagon survivor that is in great shape, and is ready to roll. The current owner purchased this wagon 7 years ago from the original owner. With only minor signs of aging, this sweet wagon survivor has been bid up to $7,900. Take a look at it here on eBay out of Phoenix, Arizona.

The 327 V8-Powerglide combo is in excellent health, and is relatively tidy. The only drawback to this wagon is its lack of options, but regardless it is still a sweet find. A solid detailing would really spiff up the engine compartment, and give this wagon a great show appearance.

The soft fawn colored interior has aged well with only a few minor areas of dirt or discoloration. A cb radio has been added which somehow seems like a perfect fit for this old wagon.  There appears to be some minor dirt along the lower portion of the dash, as well on the driver side door panel near the arm rest/door pull. Beyond those mentioned areas, the interior as a whole survived quite well.

A sharp looker from every angle, this wagon has aged very well with only minor signs of aging. There is some paint wear on the roof and the hood, but the paint is not so worn that it blatantly stands out. Also there is a minor paint scuff on the driver side quarter with an accompanying minor dent. Aside from that, the exterior of this Chevrolet is very nice. Needing nothing other than a new home, would you hit the roads in this Biscayne wagon?

    The kind of ‘warts & all’ example that its next owner might want to detail out, replace the U-joints and go cruising…

    I think they’re pretty cars. Then there’s the “survivor” dilemma. I’d want disc brakes and a 4-speed O/D automatic, and I’d feel bad modifying a survivor.

    You can tell me all day that a PG and drums are fine, but that’s not what I’d want.

    Man, GM must have sprayed an ocean of that fawn paint during the 60s.

    I learned to drive in a ’66 Impala Station Wagon, and I believe it was the same color as this Biscayne. Mom’s family hauler had a 327/275 hp engine with a tow package… I was amazed how fast it was for a big box.

      I have a big block ’66 Impala S/W and I was impressed with the power of this big boy! People are shocked when I can run away from some vehicles! It’s a blast. I get a lot of thumbs up when I take it out. If I was looking for a father/son-daughter project, the wagons are still affordable and the whole family can enjoy a fun cruise! Get them before they become too expensive!

    Best friend in high school drove her parent’s 65 wagon, which she had nick named “Crate”. And it was.

    Great for taking a huge group to the drive in and IIRC a couple of “streaking” events.

    And who would come to the rescue most of the time? Truckers that’s who. I trucked many years and years ago, I would have stopped to help anyone. That has all changed. You can’t just stop and help anyone now days because you could be robbed, killed or sued. It’s a cold world out there, and getting colder by the minute.

      I agree Wrong Way, I was an otr driver myself untill my Dad started to head south. Got a local gig to be around him untill he checked out. I am with you, it’s a cold world out there. In rural Wisconsin though, I always stop still for a disable vehicle. I put the passenger window down and give the thumbs up. If I get the same back I blaze. Take care and stay warm, Mike.

    Sold for $10.750. While not my favourite year Chevy fullsize, I love the fact this is such a stripper! It has manual everything, best thing that means less stuff to break.Looks very nice from below, it even has a period correct licence plate. Great drive&enjoy wagon at acceptable price, seems like a decent deal for both partys .

      Agreed… I also appreciate the lack of options. This is the way most Biscaynes were equipped back then. In fact, this one is a bit better than most with its auto and 327.
